Sounds Like Summer Concert Series

I love nothing more than chillin' with good food, great wine, and fabulous music. The Sounds Like Summer Concert Series at the American Gardens Theater is the perfect place for a Grown-up evening in Epcot. This summer series features a number of tribute bands to entertain.
